Windows 7: computer will not load login screen after failed Windows Update Instal

08 Jun 2013   #11


I guess you didn't see the solution I posted earlier which is the first thing to try when Updates fail. The blue links are tutorials showing how to perform each step.

If for some reason System Restore won't run from boot then you'll likely have to rescue your files to reinstall although there are other steps you can try in Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start leading up to those last resorts.
Try accessing System Recovery Options from F8 menu as shown in Option 1, then if necessary use the Win Disk which is provided in the Troubleshooting tutorial.

If you didn't understand these steps in the first place you should have asked back as I was waiting to help you, not just going off randomly trying other things as though you ignored them.

ok first thanks for your help and your attention to this issue. second I tried the tutorial you referred me to, but it didnt work. Your instructions "steps 1-3" I followed but I got stuck at the point I mentioned in an previous post. Third, I didnt go off and try stuff, I inquired about other things that could be the cause, or inquired about the effectiveness of the usb approach given, the whole MBR thing. If your refering to something specific you think I may have tried in error, please let me know. Im just trying to repair my system dude. Hope I didnt upset you and thanks for waiting around for replies.

I just tried f8 at startup and I got the Windows Boot Manager screen again.

and I previously tried steps 1-6 of the "troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Boot" Guide prior to asking for help. The HDD was removed and fully scanned with updated mbam and found no infections. But exhibited the same issue during startup.

The "1-3" I was referring to was the hypertext link in step 7 of the Guide you linked.

Not upset at all. You'll need the Win7 DVD provided in Troubleshooting step #6 to do the repairs. You should have a System Repair Disk at all times if you don't have the Win7 installer DVD or stick.
